Loretta Devine recently spoke about the Waiting to Exhale Movie sequel and how it might look more like a tribute to Whitney Houston when it finally hits theaters. S2S reports:

“They’re trying to put together Waiting to Exhale 2, but now I think the focus is for it to be a tribute to her, which would be wonderful if we could pull that off,” Loretta told KTTV TV in Los Angeles.

Apparently, the sequel, presumably titled Getting to Happy after the Terry McMillan novel, is still happening, but it’s not clear what will happen with Whitney’s character, Savannah.
